Lou Stevens Glam Squad has been training independent hairstylists and makeup artists for the past 26 years and we are now offering more formal and comprehensive classes for anyone looking to further their skills in the world of wedding day hairstyling and makeup artistry. We realized that education that specialized in bridal was severely lacking and so we have created, the Glam Squad Academy.
